Coral - orange, salmon-pink highlights, lilac highlights, yellow undertones, ages to salmon-pink . Moderate, fruity fragrance. Medium to large, double (17-25 petals), in small clusters bloom form. Blooms in flushes throughout the season. Medium, ovoid buds.
Spreading, well-branched. Large, glossy, light green foliage.
USDA zone 6b and warmer. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
Diane from New Hampshire sends along this information: This rose was just "featured" on a HGTV garden show from the Korbel Antique Rose Garden at the winery. It was gorgeous. As well as this description from Vintage Gardens Catalog: Epitome of the Pedro Dot rose; fruity-scented flowers on a very compact bush, in a lush blend of warm colors; bright salmon to salmon-pink on a peachy apricot base. Our plant offers few cuttings a year and we are likely to be back-ordered for some time, but this one is well worth the wait.
